On Tuesday evening, Indiana fell well short in Lincoln on what was an off-night for most guys, especially the guards. The offense stalled, there was some foul trouble, and there were a LOT of turnovers.
It was a night that seemed like a step back given the apparent progress made during IU’s four-game winning streak, and it certainly is going to leave a sour taste in the mouths of the Hoosiers until Ohio State comes to town offering one final shot for a big home victory this season.
Among the topics discussed on this edition of The Assembly IU Postgame Show:
— Why Justin Smith’s continued emergence was one of the few bright spots for Indiana.
— Okay, it feels like time to officially worry about Juwan Morgan’s workload (and maybe some bumps and bruises) catching up with him.
— Just how bad were the turnovers and rebounding? Bad. Real bad.
— Yet another disappointing performance by IU’s guards in a loss.
— Why this loss felt even worse than the final score indicated .
